"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." John 13:34
The Lord woke me up in the early hours of the morning and placed a song on my heart. The song says, "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." I thought it was an odd song for Him to place on my heart. So I sought Him about it. When I did, He began to show me His heart through this song.
The song is talking about literal children, but in the heart of God this song is about all mankind-- regardless of their age. He sees us all like children. He created all people-- all races, nations, kindred and tongues. He loves all people no matter the color of their skin or background.
Through this song the Lord is speaking a warning and a reminder to the body of Christ. The warning is: many are allowing the world to influence their thinking, attitude and heart toward one another. This will bring discord, disunity and disharmony into the body of Christ. The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy. He wants to stop the Word of God from going forth in the world. He wants to stop the Kingdom of God from advancing. He is using prejudice, bigotry and racism (on all sides) to try to accomplish this. He wants us to be a house divided against itself so that we will not stand.
The reminder is: We are not of the world though we are in the world. We are Kingdom people first before we are anything else. We must keep our minds renewed in God's Word and live it, walk it out, obey it, let it transform us and bring it to the lost and dying. We must remember too that it is by our love one for another that we will be known as His disciples.
The warning and reminder is: Guard your heart. Let only life and love issue from it.
Have a great day. Jesus loves the children (all people) of the world.
